April James has always dreamed of renovating a Victorian house. When she and her fiancé Matt buy a historic home in Salt Lake City, Utah, they immediately begin extensive work to make it their own unaware of a ghostly inhabitant that detests change.
From the beginning, the remodeling is plagued with setbacks, and their lives are unsettled by strange events: April hears voices inside the house, and her son Brian witnesses something moving in his bedroom closet. As they struggle to comprehend what is inside their house, an angry black entity appears to them, determined to drive them out.
The couple turns to a medium, who vows to help them fight the entity, and protect the spirits of innocent children who are still being tortured by him.
